If you want a truly worthwhile lunch I recommend SAME Cafe. SAME stands for So All May Eat. SAME Cafe was opened four years ago and features no set menu and a “pay-as-you-can” donation box. This way those struggling financially can pay what they can, or volunteer an hour of work for their meal, and for guests who do have money they are encouraged to leave a little more to offset the price.
I have enjoyed lunch twice now at SAME Cafe. The owners have focused on creating meals that feature healthy and local ingredients. When you walk in you notice a menu board which changes daily. This usually includes two types of pizza, soup and salad. On this particular visit I had a steaming bowl of lentil soup, a spinach, apple, walnut salad with a balsamic reduction and decided to skip the pizza but grabbed a cinnamon sugar cookie on the way out.
Considering I am such an amateur at this I of course forgot my camera to document my lovely meal. But you can check out their website for more information.
